|My Terrifying, Dry Warrior - Chapter 1, Francis Gives Gus The Finger - Rob Northrup|
"I've been sober three weeks now. I'm pretty sure I've hit my lowest low and I don't want to go there ever again. It helped me re-focus my life. The event was I missed eleven out of eleven on the fractions quiz. You might get to the third or fourth degree in the Junior Order of the Free and Accepted Millwrights of Fowlerville with C's and D's, but you aren't gonna get to the thirty-third degree." Will Gus complete his mission, transporting the psychic jewel to the drop point, or will cult assass...

"As I fell down the other side of the fence toward the slobbering jaws of the dog, I regretted that I had never tried Campari mixed with Capri Sun."

|Pirates vs. Ninjas vs. Zombies vs. Robots - Rob Northrup|

|Robot Hobocaust - Rob Northrup|
Robot Hobocaust is a fast beer-and-pretzels game with a little role-playing. It can be scaled down to almost no prep time, or it can be used as a meta-game on top of other existing tabletop rpg systems. Players create worlds and characters, then battle for control of the setting. If humanity had been enslaved by robots, as depicted in the movie Robot Holocaust, why do we see a robot pickpocket stealing from humans in the first scene? They can take over the world but they can't eradicate poverty ...

|Zeppelin vs. Pterodactyls: The Lost Cartoon - Rob Northrup|
A rare collaboration between Fleischer Studios and Ub Iwerks resulted in this cartoon, based on the moderately successful Republic Pictures "Zeppelin vs. Pterodactyls" cliffhanger serials. The cartoon was shelved for half a century due to a three way legal dispute between Republic, Fleischer and Iwerks. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences rejected Oscar nominations for Ben Burtt's sound design in the cartoon because it had not been formally released and because of the legal status...
